Dance Pizazz, the St. Louis area’s funnest, friendliest dance studio, (http://www.dance-pizazz.com), knows the importance of having good posture. It’s not just about being able to dance better: having bad posture can bring with it neck and back pain and weaken the immune system, just to name a few consequences. To help in the prevention of these consequences, Dance Pizazz wants to share a few tips on how ballroom dance can help any dancer achieve that perfect, balanced posture. By correcting bad posture, ballroom dance can help prevent:
1. Neck and back pain. A host of muscle imbalance issues brought on by hovering can bring the dreaded back neck and pain monsters, which have been proven costly to many a blue and white collar worker. As a form of exercise, dancing takes a holistic approach to engaging the entire core through continuous movement, enhanced flexibility, and maintained balance.
2. Stomach issues. It’s been proven time and time again: slouching can literally fold up the gastrointestinal system in ways that affect overall stomach health. Because dancing requires a straight, yet relaxed posture, gastrointestinal health and balance can be achieved in no time and many issues -such as acid reflux- can be considerably alleviated just by standing and sitting up straight.
3. Diminished energy levels. Hovering places many organs in an improper posture, which makes the cardiovascular, respiratory, and immune systems -just to name a few- work harder than necessary. This effort to make vital systems function takes away energy from other processes; thusly, the effect is that a tired body is an unhappy and unhealthy body. As a form of exercise, ballroom dance can actively address this energy lag through movement and maintained good posture.
Dance Pizazz recognizes the importance of good posture’s role in promoting a healthy body, on and off the dance floor. Check out http://www.dance-pizazz.com to see other ways ballroom dance can help correct bad posture and maintain good posture for better overall health.
